Unwed Sailor:: Little Wars

Johnathon Ford’s Unwed Sailor celebrate the 10th anniversary since their 1998 debut with their most accomplished record yet, and fourth full-length Little Wars. Little Wars is the summation of all Unwed Sailor have learned and experimented with over the years. Ford & company shape the sound with atmospheric keyboards, colored guitar, high on the neck bass and much more; resulting in melodic episodes that range from floating to the cinematic, and sometimes carry to even more intense segments, making Little Wars another necessity for any lover of instrumental rock. At the end of November 2007, the band finished recording and mixing of Little Wars, with the final Little Wars sessions recorded and mixed close to Ford’s Tulsa, OK childhood home in nearby Norman, OK by Chad Copelin (Page France, Umbrellas, Ryan Lindsey) in his new Blackwatch Studios. The core line-up that recorded The Marionette and the Music Box with Johnathon Ford was re-assembled, including longtime guitarist Nic Tse who now lives in Hong Kong, drummer Matthew Putman, and guitarist Matthew Depper, and combined with the current live band which includes keyboardist Brooks Tipton, drummer Patrick Ryan, and guitarist Andrew Haldeman.
